What kind of noise is it? From where does it come? Front wheel, left or right? or rear wheels, left or right? If your vehicle is very old, then if could simply be wearing out in which case differential, trans or wheel bearing noises are very common. Is it a high squeal or a low grumbling noise? Is it a grinding noise?
Check front wheels there is 2 pipes going to the wheels 1 is for brake fluid to the callepers and the other one is for vacume suction to ingage or dis ingage the free wheel function 99% of the time this pipe is leaking or it is broken. enjoy !! Willem SA
Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.
Vacume line is leaking and do not engaga fully. Vacume pipe an front wheels. 2 pipes 1 for brakes 1 for vacume. Pipe (rubber) connect by means of pushing it over the steel pipe. Easy to replace. Willem SA
hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps
